ORGANIZATIONS

Welcoming Committee
The goal of this committee is to help new members feel welcomed in our parish family and to inform them about the various ministries and programs available at All Saints.

Parish Council
The Parish Council is the central coordinating and unifying structure of the parish. It empowers, enlightens, and supports our parish community by acting as a consultative body to the pastor. – It is a channel through which the laity, religious and priest plan and coordinate the spiritual, financial, and educational life of our parish. Membership on the Parish Council is through self-nomination when elections are held in the spring of the year, and is open to any member of the parish over the age of 18. Parish Council members accept a three-year commitment. Meetings are held monthly on the third Tuesday, and each member is encouraged to serve as a liaison for other parish committees by attending their meetings.

Current Membership: John Brennan (Chairman), Wayne Lundt (Vice-Chairman), Mary Seaman (Secretary), Lori Cumbie, Wayne Gustke, Bob Hendee, Lawrence Nigbor and Jim Marks.

 

 

Finance Council
The Finance Council is a consultative body of lay people, mandated by canon law, whose purpose is to advise the Pastor in matters pertaining to the financial affairs of the parish.  All Saints Finance Council aids the All Saints Family in analyzing, budgeting, investing and communicating financial information.  The Finance Council brings together parishioners with expertise in areas such as accounting, banking, investments, and business management.  For this reason, members are appointed by the Pastor.

Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is an organization of Catholic men committed to charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.  Founded in 1882 by Father McGivney in New Haven Connecticut, the group was organized to aid one another in times of sickness or death; strengthen themselves and each other in faith; and to be of service to the Church and community.  Our local council and 4th degree assembly each meet monthly.  The Knights support the parish by ushering for Sunday Mass and volunteering for various parish events.  They raise and donate funds for charitable needs and projects including Special Olympics and pro-life organizations through Tootsie Roll and Life-Saver candy sales as well as Bingo and other activities.

 

Holy Name Society
All men of the parish are welcome and encouraged to become involved in the Holy Name Society which promotes reverence for the sacred names of God and Jesus Christ. The organization encourages the personal sanctification and holiness of its members who are called to build the kingdom of God; teaching, spreading and defending faith in Christ by practicing and promoting special devotion to the Most Holy Name of Jesus. Its members sponsor various activities in the parish, including a Pancake Breakfast, Mother/Daughter Breakfast and an annual Healing Mass. Members are invited to attend an annual weekend retreat.
